(WTRF) A video going around on social media, getting over 700,000 views, shows a West Virginia Journalist getting struck by a vehicle live on television.
WSAZ-TV reporter Tori Yorgey said she was ‘okay’ after she got right back up to finish her report.
“Oh my god! I just got hit by a car, but I’m OK. I just got hit by a car, but I’m OK Tim,’ Tori said.
“Well, that’s a first for you on TV, Tori,” the anchor Tim Irr said.
Tori said this isn’t the first time she was struck by a vehicle, she also claimed she got hit by a vehicle in college. The driver apparently apologized to Tori, but Tori said she was alright.
“Ma’am, you are so sweet, and you are OK,” she told her.
Tori added: “I thought I was in a safe spot but clearly we might need to move the camera over a little bit.”
Starting Feb. 1, Yorgey will be working for ABC affiliate WTAE in Pittsburgh.
